Jorgie Porter has claimed she ‘misses’ posing for lads’ mags because they were ’empowering’ and ‘great money’.
The actress, 33, has previously posed for publications like Nuts, Zoo and FHM, and said on Tuesday that she was ‘grateful’ to have been able model for the publications.
Speaking to The Sun, Jorgie suggested that she would now only be interested in stripping off for her beau Ollie Piotrowski, who she was first spotted with in September 2020.

Jorgie, who is best known for starring in Hollyoaks as Theresa McQueen, told the publication: ‘I miss the lads’ mags shoots. It was great money back then! I loved doing them. It was empowering as well.
‘But it wasn’t all the posing. It was the confidence that was important. That’s what makes you sexy. I feel very grateful that I got to do all the lads’ mags.’
Back in 2011, Jorgie was ranked 50th in FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World.
She was also shortlisted in the Sexiest Female category at the Soap Awards in 2012 and 2013 during her original 8-year Hollyoaks stint.

Going on to speak of Ollie, she added: ‘I never imagined wanting to settle down with someone so much. It’s like this club we’ve just found and I’m like, “Ah, I get it now!” I’ve joined the love club.’
